Question about Dell Inspiron 1721 Notebook
Usually computers that have built in webcams come with a software suite for photos, unless Windows has been wiped an re-installed. I would check the Dell website with the service tag in order to see a list of programs/drivers that were installed when the computer was brand new. Let the site search your service tag for you. You should be able to download the programs needed right there.

ok, theres a small issue with the raid controller. You have to install a 3rd party raid driver (its on the dell cd) to continue, OR, you can set that BIOS's hard drive controls to ATA or LEGACY (legacy would likely work best, but youd have no 'raid' functions, but who sets up raid drives on a notebook?). Your last option is use the dell discs to restore, and inssert the windws disc when prompted

Testimonial: "Thank you so much! It didn't have a option for Legacy, but only RAID and ATA. But it's working!! You are super awesome!! Thank you!!!"
No.1 ALL (DELL) notebook and laptop machines use sound chips, audio
features are provided by software emulation. This means whats inside
your computer isn't a full blown sound card as such. Its a sound chip
that mimics a real sound card using software.
No.2 Your machine may be missing the precise make & model sound drivers, in order to get hold of the correct sound drivers for your Inspiron 1520
go to DELL's website and under the support section see login or drivers. You will need your machines service tag (underneath the machine) put this into the website and ALL your machines device drivers should appear in a long listing. You can then download the sound or audio drivers for free.
**Just download the drivers to a temporary folder and then run the installation process, you may need to reboot the machine to complete the process.
**Line in is just a socket or channel that allows input from a microphone. You STILL need a hardware microphone connected a) either the built in microphone that comes with the machine or b) plug in an external microphone.
**You can always use Windows (assuming your using windows) device manager, open device manager & look down the listing for audio devices, to see if the Microphone hardware is being seen by the operating system. If it's not it will have a yellow exclamation mark or question mark next to it.

In the page below you can enter your operating system and other information and find the drivers for you webcam.
If the drivers won't help you try installing a webcam program on your laptop such as "Youcam" that will make your webcam work.
